NEW ZEALAND FRUIT FARMS, A PROGRESSIVE POLICY. The New Zealand Government lias taken a bold; step in connection with the development of the fruit industry in that country. It is proposed to estab lish-fruit farms on comparatively poor land in the Wairenga district of the North Island. The Dominion Minister for Agriculture (Mr T.

At such a critical time, the following (not less than the cryptic reference in the Pickwick trial to chops and tomato sauce) is un doubtedly most significant: . We notice that whilst Lord Lansdowne and Mr A. Chamberlain both adopt this style" (the velvet collar style) "yet neither Mr Balfour nor Lord Cawdor followed their example.
